On to Malaysia

Put one in the books, the 2012 F1 season is off and running.

Just a quick recap if you weren't paying attention: McLaren declared their presence with authority in Australia, locking up the front row, and firing a shot across Red Bull's bows. The troubles at Ferrari proved to be more than a myth, while Lotus, Mercedes, Force India, Sauber and, dare I say, Williams all came away from Albert Park with high hopes for the new season.

Some of the big storylines of the past week:

The weather looks to hold a few surprises for this weekend in Sepang, and it should be interesting to see what lies in store. It should also prove interesting to see who really is in the hunt for 2012 and who simply had a lucky race in Australia.

Can Red Bull answer back? Will Lewis Hamilton take the fight to Jenson Button, or is he, as some have questioned, already a beaten man? Can Fernando Alonso wring points out of the Ferrari? Can Felipe Massa do... something? Is this the beginning of a Williams resurgence?

Of note: Heikki Kovalainen will receive a grid penalty for passing under the safety car. And there will be one DRS zone this weekend.

Questions abound, and the action kicks off in just a few hours. Stay tuned...
